Even Freep is overwhelmingly positive, especially for a gender bender like Bowe. In their 300+ post thread, there's only like 4 turds in the punchbowl. Lets name and shame them, shall we?
First, a taste of the tributes: Albion Wilde is rather sweet:
RIP, dear crazy loony wonderful talent.Noted sexist White Supremacist wardaddy saw him live:
I saw the Ziggy tour in 72/73 in Memphis at EllisFrom England, the scotsman has this touching tribute:
Mick Ronson was perfect
Utterly shocked and upset.Post 188, Jim 0216 starts:
One of my heroes is dead. Yet it dosent seem real, maybe it never will. Ziggy dosent die, he just dosent.
I know many in America will mourn his passing, but in the UK, his death has almost stopped the country, such a British icon he was. The media is wall to wall Bowie, and rightly so. he wasn’t just a musician in Britain, but a huge cultural icon for so many groups, from teens and rock fans to fashionistas, gays.........
Nobody had seen anything like Bowie in 1972 when he speared as Ziggy. His appearances on British TV like Top of the Pops aren’t just great music clips, they are iconic pieces of British TV and culture. His influence on British music and culture is immense.
Thank you David for all the pleasure you gave to us. RIP.
I’ve gotta believe this was an HIV-related disease.Celtic Conservative has this hilarious bon mot:
Might’ve been the homosexuality. Might’ve been cancer from cigarette smoking. Either way it’s the fags that killed him.xzins is the only one to post multiple posts:
Bowie said in 1972 that he was gay.Always one to twist facts in her direction, birther Fantasywriter gets into it with xzins:
Another gay with a couple decades cut off his life.
Like the Bible says, on the word of one witness, convict them.xzins is finally worn down to blaming Bowe's death on the "MSM lifestyle."
Or was that two witnesses? On the Jagger incident, we have one. On bisexuality, we have Bowie’s statement, coupled with (1) no evidence he acted on it, and (2) his own admission that much of what he said was for publicity.
By the way, my point in bringing out his MSM status in my first post wasn’t to beat a morality drum — although I do consider homosexuality, like all immorality, harmful — I was commenting that he’s another victim of the MSM lifestyle who chopped a decade or two off of his life.
The shortening of life was my point. You didn’t say anything to make me think you were disputing my intention. I simply want to repeat it. MSM is dangerous and shortens life.
